Independence coach Paul Riley hopes that his team's second of three straight road games goes better than the first. The Independence suffered their first-ever Women's Professional Soccer loss with last week's 2-1 defeat in St. Louis against the Athletica. Now it's on to Chicago for Saturday's 7 p.m. game with the Red Stars. The Independence are 2-1-2 while Chicago is just 1-3-1, although the one win was a 2-0 victory at Boston, a place where the Independence played the Breakers to a 1-1 draw.

MATT CULLEN scored 90 seconds into the game and again in a shootout to lift the Minnesota Wild to a 3-2 victory over visiting Chicago on Wednesday, handing the Blackhawks their first loss in seven games this season. Cullen's snap shot in the third round slipped between Corey Crawford's legs, and Patrick Sharp then hit the crossbar for Chicago. The Blackhawks and San Jose were the only teams to start 6-0 this year. The Wild improved to 4-1 at home. Goals by Andrew Shaw and Jonathan Toews early in the first period prompted the Wild to pull goalie Josh Harding for Niklas Backstrom.

Ulf Dahlen didn't wait long to make an impression on his new teammates. Playing in his first game since Chicago acquired him from San Jose over the weekend, Dahlen scored the winning goal at 3:32 of the third period to lead the visiting Blackhawks to a 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers last night. "If I missed that shot, it would have been embarrassing," Dahlen said of his game-winner. "Tony made the play - I just put it into an empty net. " Dahlen referred to Tony Amonte, who had scored his 31st goal 38 seconds into the period to tie the game.

I'VE JUST returned from an end-of-summer family trip to Chicago, and I feel like I understand Philadelphia better than ever. Travel is a risk for Philadelphians because it raises touchy questions like, "Why not here?" The downside risk is that the question leads to resignation. The upside risk is that it leads to inspiration. Get enough people inspired and "Why not here?" becomes a slogan rather than a question. Recently though, Chicago has been used as an example to avoid.

"Wonder where they got the name Chicago?" My lunch partner with the inquiring mind likes to know such things, particularly since the restaurant in the Pennsauken Country Club looks like a restaurant in a country club and not a bit like one in the Windy City. Seems that the restaurant started out as Chicago at another South Jersey location and then moved with the name intact. These days, following the recent announcement that Chicago has been singled out by a leading wine magazine for its outstanding wine list, business has been so hot that it could remind you of the Chicago fire.

THE 2014 Eagles will play two preseason games before fans get to see them at Lincoln Financial Field. The NFL announced preseason schedules yesterday, minus dates and times. The Eagles will kick off 2014 in Chicago, then play at New England. That game is expected to be accompanied by joint Patriots-Eagles practices, as was the case last season, only those were at NovaCare and these will be in Massachusetts. The third week of the preseason, the Eagles host the Steelers before continuing the tradition like no other, a preseason finale against the Jets contested largely by guys who aren't going to make either roster.

Last week at about this time, the Eagles were sky high after their amazing victory over Washington. But they got their feet on the ground quickly, knowing that they had to prepare for the Super Bowl champion 49ers. This week, they don't exactly have that far to float after losing to the 49ers, but they still have a scintillating matchup to look forward to. That's the way the Eagles' early-season schedule goes - big games week after week, with no time to stop and analyze the meaning of the last performance.

THE YOUNG Detroit Red Wings have made the mighty Chicago Blackhawks look vulnerable, beating them two straight times to gain an advantage in their last playoff matchup as Western Conference rivals. Gustav Nyquist and Drew Miller scored 31 seconds apart midway through the second period and Pavel Datsyuk restored a two-goal lead in the third to help Detroit beat visiting Chicago, 3-1, last night and take a 2-1 lead in the second-round series. As good as the Red Wings have looked - scoring six straight goals to earn momentum in the series - their hard-driving coach isn't ready to celebrate.

"Whin ye see two men set in opposite corners while one mutters 'thraiter' an' th' other hisses 'miscreent,' ye can bet they're two Dimmycratic leaders tryin' to reunite th' party. " So spake the barkeep philosopher Mr. Dooley, the long ago creation of that great Chicago humorist, Finley Peter Dunne. In his pithy way, Mr. Dooley was saying the same thing as the German philosopher Hegel, who held that a political party can be said truly to exist only when it is divided against itself.

Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey acknowledged today that he talked to Chicago's Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel about possibly returning to the Windy City to become top-cop there. Emanual initiated the contact, Ramsey said, but no job offer has been made. "Clearly I'm torn," Ramsey said. "I love Philadelphia . . . but I can't just dismiss (Chicago). It is my hometown, the department where I started my career. But it's not as if I'm unhappy here. " Ramsey, a Chicago native, still has family there.

LESS THAN 6 WEEKS ago, on a preseason morning in Arizona, Austin Berry was joking around with teammate Jeff Larentowicz on the way to that day's training session. Berry was readying for his third season as a starting defender for the Chicago Fire. And then he wasn't. "Initially, it was a pretty big shock," he said this week of the Feb. 24 trade to Philadelphia. That shock has worn off, but this weekend surely will bring back some memories for Berry. The Union (1-1-2) heads to the Windy City to play the winless Chicago Fire (0-1-3)

When Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel took office in 2011, he was confronted by what he saw as a dysfunctional and inefficient system for promoting the city. In place - as there is now in Philadelphia - were two marketing agencies, one to bring conventions to Chicago, the other to woo leisure tourists. Emanuel's solution: Merge them. The result: a reduction in overlapping staff and operational expenses that has created $2 million in annual savings. "The mayor's approach was to have a unified brand for Chicago," said David Spielfogel, senior adviser to the mayor, "and use every dollar saved in marketing the city.

FORT LEE, N.J. - On a day when Gov. Christie's opponents dogged him from this Bergen County borough to Chicago, a small group of protesters gathered Tuesday near the George Washington Bridge, recounting the unusually bad traffic several of them endured when some lanes to the bridge were closed in September. Facing a throng of television cameras on a snow-covered perch overlooking the bridge, where cars and trucks moved at a steady clip during lunch hour, Valerie Howard-Fadul recalled the 51/2 hours she said she spent driving back from a Sept.

After a review on the play, The Inquirer's call on which is the tallest U.S. building between Manhattan and Chicago stands corrected. Apologies to civic boosters in Atlanta . . . and readers in Philadelphia. Since the first Comcast employees occupied the Comcast Center in 2008, the newspaper has referenced the cable-TV company's headquarters, an A.M. Stern-designed 974-foot skyscraper, as the tallest U.S. building between Manhattan and Chicago. Oops. That would be true - if the United States' southern border ended at South Carolina.

* CHICAGO P.D. 10 tonight, NBC10. TITLES don't come much more generic than "Chicago P.D.," the new NBC drama from "Law & Order" producer Dick Wolf that spins off tonight from the equally generic-sounding "Chicago Fire" (10 p.m. Tuesdays, NBC10). But Wolf, who built an empire from a formula originally intended to make "Law" and "Order" split easily for half-hour syndication - and who proved, over and over, that no actor is irreplaceable - seems to be allowing his new franchise more latitude.

Law & Order creator Dick Wolf pretty much owns network crime TV, with a hit-vs.-miss ratio unparalleled by virtually anyone save perhaps Steven Bochco. So, it's all the more conspicuous when he misses, as he does with Chicago PD - a spinoff of sorts from Chicago Fire - which will have its series premiere Wednesday. An unruly, confused piece of TV police work starring Jason Beghe, Jon Seda, Sophia Bush, and Elias Koteas, Chicago PD has a high profile among the crop of new and returning cop shows this winter.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. - The Chicago Bears defense, traditionally the team's strength but this year a liability, could see the return of star outside linebacker Lance Briggs in Sunday night's game against the Eagles. Briggs has not played since Oct. 20 when he broke a bone in his left shoulder in a game at Washington, but he has been getting closer to returning every week. "Lance will practice this week," Chicago coach Marc Trestman said Monday. "It is going to be day-to-day. I'm reasonably optimistic, but it is going to be through the three days of practice before a decision is made.

CHICAGO - Dejected and shaking his head, Ray Emery skated to the Flyers' bench 1 minute into the third period and patted Steve Mason on the pads as if to say, "Good luck. " Craig Berube had no plans to pull Emery - especially not after he received a standing ovation less than 2 hours earlier in his first game back at the United Center since helping the Blackhawks to a Stanley Cup last June. Berube had no choice, even with rest needed for Steve Mason and the Canadiens waiting for the Flyers back in Philadelphia.

CHICAGO - For as long as Flyers goalie Ray Emery returns to Chicago, the images of 2 million red-clad fans who packed Grant Park on a glorious June day last summer to serenade him and the Blackhawks will be fresh. He will think about his relationship with starter Corey Crawford and the rest of his teammates, a link that is permanently etched in silver on that gleaming Stanley Cup. "Any time you win a championship, you form a special bond," Emery said. "The one I have with Crawford, the one I have with those guys . . . we were all at the same stage in our lives, it was tough to leave.
